Wade takes lead in crucial Game 4 victory


By Chris Perkins, for NBA.com

MIAMI (NBA.com exclusive) -- Break out all the superlatives and apply each one to Heat guard Dwyane Wade's franchise-record 46-point performance in Sunday's 101-92 Game 3 victory against Boston.

He was spectacular, awesome and amazing, and at times he was flat-out unbelievable, specifically when he went charging down the lane for that thunderous first-quarter dunk that was soon followed by a dazzling reverse dunk.

"You score 50 points against us?" Boston forward Glen Davis asked rhetorically, giving Wade an extra four points. "That's tough. I wonder if he can keep it up? I don't know."

Even some of Wade's teammates were a bit surprised.

"He's done it before," said Heat forward Michael Beasley, who watched Wade amass three 50-point games last year while leading the league in scoring, "but to do it in a playoff game against one of the best teams in the league...He's a great player."

He is indeed, and he's the sole reason the Heat is still alive in this first-round best-of-seven Eastern Conference playoff series. Miami trails, 3-1, as opposed to having been swept.

"He's one of the best players in the league," said Boston forward Kevin Garnett, who ended with 18 points. "(His play) doesn't surprise us."

What did surprise Boston was the 20-point outburst from Heat forward Quentin Richardson.

"We just have to make sure we limit everyone around him as far as points," Davis said.

And even more surprising was Celtics guard Ray Allen (15 points) missing three consecutive free throws in the final 2:36, starting with the one he missed with Boston trailing, 96-92. This is a guy who almost never misses in such situation. He shot .913 from the line this season and shoots .894 for his career.

Allen called the misses "unlucky" and a "fluke" said he had a "bad rhythm."

"I just have to get back in there and shoot a couple hundred," he said.

He might suggest the same thing to Garnett. He missed a pair of free throws with 1:11 left and the Celtics trailing, 98-92. Overall, Boston was 0-for-5 from the line in the final 2:36.

But the Celtics, who have beaten the Heat in 14 of their last 16 meetings, don't seem concerned about this series. They know they're going back to TD Garden for Game 5 on Tuesday.

"There's no need to panic," said guard Rajon Rondo, who led Boston with 23 points and nine assists. "It's just one game."

For a while this game seemed as though it would follow a familiar pattern. The Heat's 49-43 halftime lead turned into a 77-71 deficit going into the fourth quarter. In the past couple of years that's meant an automatic Boston victory against Miami.

But Wade didn't allow it to happen. He scored 19 fourth-quarter points, going 4-of-4 on 3-pointers, and raising the eyebrows of everyone in AmericanAirlines Arena, including Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano, who watched the game while sitting beside Heat president Pat Riley.

"Coming into the fourth I think we were down six," Wade said. "I was trying to be very aggressive. I was shooting all those shots no matter what. I started making a couple. I got hot at the right time. I just wanted to will my team to victory."

For its part, Boston has no reason to be discouraged.

"They got 28 points off (16) turnovers," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "They shot 56 percent from the field. We were 16-of-27 from the free throw line and through all that we still had a chance to win the game. We have to be better in Game 5. We have to get off to better starts. I felt like we came in the game thinking of ending the series instead of thinking about playing basketball. I thought we took our eyes off of the process."
